There are a number of clues all over the page that indicate that it's a joke. I mean look at the "small text" disclaimer on the main page. As long as the clues are there, I think it's just fine (and darn funny!).

I think the problem is that too many people don't understand scarcasm. It's a problem with in journalist writes a satire, or when Randy Newman wrote the song "Short People" and a lot of people actually thought that he really hated short people, or when Slashdot (and I still can't believe they did this) posted the "news" release from Despair.com claiming the patent to online happy faces ":)" (and this was without the "foot" graphic Slashdot uses to indicate humor).
